GF Machining Solutions Secures Major U.S. Aerospace Order



Signing celebration between GF Machining Solutions LLC and GKN Aerospace.

(l-r) Martin Thorden, General Manager and Vice President, GKN Aerospace Engine Systems New England; Philipp Hauser, Head of Turbine Group - Liechti, GF Machining Solutions LLC; Jennifer Riley, Supply Chain Director, GKN Aerospace Engine Systems New England; Mike Costello, Sales Manager North America / Turbine Group - Liechti, GF Machining Solutions LLC; and Jon Ford, Director of Engineering, GKN Aerospace Engine Systems New England

GF Machining Solutions LLC, a division of Georg Fischer, has won a significant order from GKN Aerospace New England, Incorporated. The company, located in Manchester, CT, ordered several high-precision milling machine tools, software and automation - all that will be backed with GF Machining Solutions training, service and support.

"With the new contract, GF Machining Solutions further strengthens its position as a leading supplier to the aircraft engine building industry. GKN Aerospace, the aerospace operation of GKN plc, is one of the world's largest independent first tier aerospace suppliers," said a spokesperson.

GF Machining Solutions provides machine tools, automation solutions and customer services for the production of molds, dies and metal parts. The division has manufacturing facilities in Switzerland, Sweden and China and serves its customers through its own sales companies in more than 50 countries.

Liechti Engineering AG, located in Langnau, Switzerland - one of the companies under the GF Machining Solutions brand umbrella - will build the new machine tools, and with them, GKN Aerospace will produce key stator vanes for jet engines. Order delivery is expected to happen between the third quarter of 2017 and the second quarter of 2018.
